Soft Body Witchy Windy, kiTn and pumpkin Ebay 10/10

This little one is just 8 inches tall. She is the largest of my Soft Body Babies. I'm just taking a little break from working with the magnifiers. I really enjoyed making this sweet Witchy Windy and her little kiTn and pumpkin. I have listed this set on Ebay. You can read a full description on my auction listing.  Click on the link on the top right side of this page. Enjoy! Hugs, Morena

Several people have asked for a description of my work so here it is.
Her name is Windy and she has the palest skin and she has been painted with many layers of heat set oil paints. They give her a life like appearance. She is made without the use of a mold as are all of my Soft Body Babies. I have mixed several types of polymer clays with a base of prosculpt to give this little one a translucent skin color almost a waxy appearance.  Her body is soft pink knit and been lightly weighted. Her hair is fine mohair wool which I have dyed baby blond. She has beautiful large hand blown blue/grey eyes.  I do not use clothing patterns and many of my materials are vintage so the babies wear one of a kind outfit too.  This sweet one is wearing a vintage white cotton dress with handmade lace trim. I found this piece of fabric during my travels through the mountains of New England.  It was a beautiful ruffle of an old dress.  I was thrilled to have enough for this set. Her tiny dress has been decorated with  Halloween green heart shaped button beads.  I have crocheted a pretty navy and orange sweater and matching bonnet using the finest threads. It will keep her warm on those cold October nights.They are decorated with little silk ribbon rose buds and bows. Windy’s furry friend kiTin was created just for her. He is plush fiber and has green bead eyes, thread embroidered details and silk ribbon accents. So… then came this wonderful piece of soft worn muslin and a pumpkin appeared….lol! It didn’t just appear it took many hours of work to transform it…lol! A little handmade thread crocheted and green colored doily was added for the leaves and now she has a little something to curl up on. Oh, we must not forget a tiny matching pillowcase for those Trick or Treat goodies! It will arrive filled with little surprises. All of my work comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. 


  1. Oh how I ADORE this child's face! I have wanted to learn to make soft body dolls for soooo long and every time I look upon one of your lovely children, Morena, I am even more inspired!! much love, Rose

  2. Hello Dear Rose! Thank you for your kind words. She was in the clay the entire time. I just set her free. Making a soft body for all of the different size babies is very time consuming but I love the way they feel in my hands. Each baby is weighted with various material depending on the size. Some of the smallest ones have a glass bead cores. It gives them weight and a special FEEL. It is a balance of soft materials and weighty materials. I hope to see one of your soft body babies sometime. Your work touches my soul. You inspire ME! Much love, XXX Morena
